mlreportgen.dom.FormalTable class

Package: mlreportgen.dom
Superclasses:

Formal table

Description

Defines a formal table, which is a table that has a body and optionally a table header, a table footer, or both. The table header, body, and footer are mlreportgen.dom.TableHeader, mlreportgen.dom.TableBody, and mlreportgen.dom.TableFooter objects, respectively.

Construction

formalTableObj = FormalTable() creates an empty formal table. Use this constructor as the starting point to create a formal table from scratch.

formalTableObj = FormalTable(ncols) creates an empty formal table having the specified number of columns.

formalTableObj = FormalTable(body) creates a formal table with the body content specified. The constructor converts basic MATLAB® types to corresponding DOM objects. For example, the constructor converts character vectors to mlreportgen.dom.Text objects.

formalTableObj = FormalTable(body,styleName) creates a formal table having the specified body content and style.

formalTableObj = FormalTable(header,body) creates a formal table with a header and a body using the specified contents, and an empty footer.

formalTableObj = FormalTable(header,body,styleName) creates a formal table using the specified content and style. The table has an empty footer.

formalTableObj = FormalTable(header,body,footer) creates a formal table with the specified content for the body, header, and footer.

A value of 'on' collapses borders of adjacent cells into a single border. A value of 'off' keeps borders of adjacent cells.

Border color, specified as either:

Table border width, specified in the form valueUnits, where Units is an abbreviation for the units. Valid abbreviations are:

  • px — pixels (default)

  • cm — centimeters

  • in — inches

  • mm — millimeters

  • pc — picas

  • pt — points

This read-only property lists child elements of this object.

The style of the line separating the columns of a table or table section (header, body, footer), as specified by a mlreportgen.dom.ColSep object.

See the description of the Border property for a description of the possible values.

Color of line separating columns, specified as either:

Width of the line separating table columns, in the form valueUnits. Use one of these abbreviations for the Units:

  • px — pixels (default)

  • cm — centimeters

  • in — inches

  • mm — millimeters

  • pc — picas

  • pt — points

For example, for a column separator of 3 points, set the ColSepWidth property to '3pt'.

An array of mlreportgen.dom.TableColSpecGroup objects that specifies the width, alignment, and other properties of a group of columns. The first object applies to the first group of columns, the second object to the second group, and so on. Specify the number of columns belonging to each group using the Span property of the TableColSpecGroup object. For example, if the first object has a span of 2, it applies to the first two columns. If the second group has a span of 3, it applies to the next three columns, and so on.

The custom attributes must be supported by the output type of the document to which this document element is appended.

Column flow direction, specified as:

  • 'ltr' — Flow from left to right (column 1 is to the left in the table).

  • 'rtl' — Flow from right to left (column 1 is to the right in the table).

Horizontal alignment of this table, specified as one of these values:

  • 'center'

  • 'left'

  • 'right'

The table constructor creates a table header object and assigns it to this property when the formal table is constructed. You cannot subsequently set this property. However, you can append content to the table body and set its properties via this property.

ID for this document element, specified as a character vector. The DOM generates a session-unique ID when it creates the document element. You can specify your own ID.

Left indentation in the form valueUnits. Units is an abbreviation for the units. Valid abbreviations are:

  • px — pixels (default)

  • cm — centimeters

  • in — inches

  • mm — millimeters

  • pc — picas

  • pt — points

This read-only property lists the parent of this document element.

The style of a line separating the rows of a table or table section (header, body, or footer).

See the description of the Border property for a description of the possible values.

You can specify:

Width of the row separator, specified in the form valueUnits where Units is an abbreviation for the units. Valid abbreviations are:

  • px — pixels (default)

  • cm — centimeters

  • in — inches

  • mm — millimeters

  • pc — picas

  • pt — points

Array of format objects (such as Bold objects) that specify the format for this table.

This property overrides corresponding formats defined by the style sheet style specified by the StyleName property.

Name of a style specified in the style sheet of the document or document part to which this table is appended

The style that specifies the appearance of this table in the output document, for formats not specified by Style property.

You can set the StyleName property of any formal table section. Setting StyleName overrides the style specified by the formal table itself. However, if you do this for a Word document, you must explicitly specify the width of each column in a section to ensure that all sections have the same width. Word, unlike HTML and PDF, has no built-in support for formal tables. To handle this, the DOM interface represents a formal table as three tables, one for each section, embedded in a 3x1 table.

Cell array of format objects that specify the format for table entries.

The inner margin is the margin between table cell content and the cell borders in the form valueUnits where Units is an abbreviation for the units. Valid abbreviations are:

  • px — pixels (default)

  • cm — centimeters

  • in — inches

  • mm — millimeters

  • pc — picas

  • pt — points

Tag for document element, specified as a character vector.

A session-unique ID is generated as part of document element creation. The generated tag has the form CLASS:ID, where CLASS is the class of the element and ID is the value of the Id property of the object. You can specify a tag to replace the generated tag.

For example, to make it easier to identify where an issue occurred during document generation, you can specify your own tag value.

A percentage (for example, '100%') of the page width (minus margins for Word reports) or a number of units of measurement, having the format valueUnits. Units is an abbreviation for the units. These are valid abbreviations:

  • px — pixels (default)

  • cm — centimeters

  • in — inches

  • mm — millimeters

  • pc — picas

  • pt — points

Methods
